    Cold Fusion is a programming language like PHP, Perl or ASP. I highly recommend learning PHP over Cold Fusion...partially because I don't know offhand where to learn Cold Fusion...and also because it's not open source. You'll have a much easier time finding tutorials on PHP.

    Cold Fusion is by far easier to learn than PHP, actually Cold Fusion is one of the most simple and straightforward languages I've seen.

    I recommend Cold FUsion 4.0 by Ben Forta for learning it.

    But it is very hard to find free open source scripts for it, and it you also need to pay for the server components if you run your own server. But most people who host NT servers will have Cold Fusion installed on it already so you don't pay extra.

    I personally really like Cold Fusion, and it's quickly becoming my language of choice.

    im with aspen, ben forta is the way to go. except i would recommend a different book by him, "The Cold Fusion Web Application Construction Kit, Second Edition". I've read both this one, and the one on 4.0, and I just like this one better. It also gives you an introduction to MSAccess, MSSQL and how to write your own SQL code.

    CF is easy to learn and you can generally find answers to your questions on allaire forums.

    These links might help too:
